Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist Los Angeles | Downtown LA Photoshoot

Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist Los Angeles | Downtown LA Photoshoot

I would like to share a fun experience I recently had working as a celebrity wardrobe stylist Los Angeles. L.A. has a great community of creatives working with each other. Tarek Reed is the fashion photographer I worked with on this campaign. I have already worked with him on a couple of projects,  his works are simply stunning.

Celebrities and influences are some of my favorite people to work with because they have a certain energy that is contagious. These celebrities and influencers have a certain personal brand that they have achieved which makes each one unique to style. This group of talent also gives me a lot of options to create the looks that they can easily pull off. Working with them is always an adventure and experimental at times.

Tarek Reed is one of my favorite fashion photographers. It was a pleasure to work with him, especially because there are a lot of people he can pick for a celebrity wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles. We did photo shoots for a few projects for clients including fashion stores, showrooms and model agencies. We got a behind the scenes videographer to shoot a video of this particular collaboration. Working with a professional like Tarek Reed is a great opportunity to cultivate my work. We are currently in the process of submitting the final images for publication. It is exciting to see  the final products when you have helped produce beautiful photos. It is even more exciting to see them in publications.

During the shoot with Tarek Reed, I did my job as a celebrity wardrobe stylist. Downtown Los Angeles was our location. Many people ask what a celebrity wardrobe stylist does, so I’ll make a short list of the things I actually do during a project:

  • I select items including fashion items and props that a model can use for a shoot whether it is for magazine, billboards or other media.
  • Sometimes I also advise the photographer on what would look good in photos and items that are then chosen for us to promote.
  • I Communicate with celebrities/models, retailers, designers, brands, hairdressers, photographers, etc.
  • I also do makeup and hair styling for celebrities during a photoshoot.
  • Generally, I advise clients about what fashion direction they should take.

A celebrity wardrobe stylist may do the things listed above, and more, but the main goal is to make the model or the celebrity look good for a shoot whether on video or in photographs. It does sound fun, right? Working with different kinds of creatives and putting together something beautiful for others to look at.

So what does it take to be a celebrity wardrobe stylist? I found out after years of working in this job, that passion for fashion and unique trends is the first and foremost thing that a wardrobe stylist must have. Next to that, is a keen eye for beauty. What colors match the model’s tone? What items must be selected for the celebrity to wear to make the photographs stand out? These are all the things that I think about every day on the job.

Personal Stylist and Makeup Artist in LA | Salvation Mountain Photoshoot

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA I was working with wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer Radostina Boseva ( Joy ). Joy’s client, Viki  asked her to arrange a shoot for her 18th birthday. Viki then contacted me to take care of her personal wardrobe styling and hair-makeup during our one day photoshoot.

We were shooting on both film and digital, Joy stated: I love to shoot with both film (yeah, the old school film rolls) and digital. The images that you will see here are primarily shoot on film, because I love the colors and the dreamy look.

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA, I love to travel for work to beautiful places. For this photo shoot, our location was Salvation Mountain, Salvation Mountain is a hillside visionary environment created by local resident Leonard Knight in the California Desert area of Imperial County, north of Calipatria, northeast of Niland near Slab City, and several miles from the Salton Sea.

From Radostina Boseva about our shoot: One of the most interesting, challenging and fun photoshoots that I did last year, actually happened at the very end on December 30. I flew down to Los Angeles from San Francisco and together with the fantastic fashion stylist and makeup artist Luca Buzas we drove down all the way to Salvation Mountain for this colorful and fun birthday photoshoot. The entire session was photographed on film and I think only film could preserve all those beautiful colors in the California desert.

Los Angeles Television Wardrobe Stylist | Sugar Lady TV Commercial

Los Angeles Television Wardrobe Stylist | Sugar Lady TV Commercial

As a Los Angeles television wardrobe stylist, I principally work on TV commercials. while I lived in Shanghai, China I was hired by Fred and Farid, an international independent advertising agency to work on a project with one of their clients, Sugar Lady, on their next commercial. Moreover, the production company asked me to bring on board, a hair and makeup team for this commercial.

On this commercial, I took care of the direction we were going regarding the appearance for wardrobe and hair-makeup. The style was very elegant and minimal, I used only monochrome colours for accessories and I selected very large brim hats to keep our model mysterious. In fashion terms, hats are a very noticeable accessory because the onlooker’s attention is first drawn to the face. For this reason, I made sure the costumers first attention would be drawn to Sugar Lady’s newest collection.

For styling, the key things you need are creativity, communication skills, and good teamwork. With luxury brands, these things are very important as a result of the clients have really refined taste. There are some inherent and learned qualities that build a successful fashion stylist.

As a wardrobe stylist agency in Los Angeles, you need to have several wardrobe and fashion stylists in your roster to recommend for specific projects. You can represent stylists in each category, for example luxury, sport, beauty, and fashion.

Sugar Lady has been a ladies fashion brand for over 30 years. Sugar Lady is a luxury brand or prestige brand for which a majority of its products are luxury fashion clothes and accessories.

Children’s Wardrobe Stylist | Barbie “You can be anything” TV Commercial

Recently I collaborated with Barbie on their “You can be anything” campaign as a children’s wardrobe stylist. With my children’s wardrobe stylist team we had to style 16 children for this TV commercial. Our day started at Mattel studios in Los Angeles, CA where you can find an entire Barbie wardrobe closet full of clothing and fashion accessories. This commercial was produced by STORIES International and directed by Barry Norwood.

For this branded commercial we had to choose very bright and colorful wardrobe options because the concept was based on girls that can become anything they dream to be. It was a very inspirational video where our kids could achieve and empower themselves through their role models. Imagine the possibilities, see what happens when girls are free to imagine, they can be anything. Leading by example for 56 years, Barbie inspires girls to be anything. As a children’s wardrobe stylist in California I love to work with child actors, they are very self driven and talented.

“My whole philosophy with Barbie was that, through the doll, the girl can be anything she wants to be. Barbie has always represented the fact that a woman has choices. “- RUTH HANDLER, BARBIE CREATOR

Adweek wrote an article about our campaign for International Women’s Day, and brands are committing like never before to honoring women everywhere. The Mattel brand unveiled dolls based on women heroes like Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo, Katherine Johnson and Chloe Kim. “Barbie is committed to shining a light on empoweringrole models past and present in an effort to inspire more girls,” the brand says.

Professional Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | BRAND’S TV Commercial

Recently 3388 Films found me to style a BRAND’S TV commercial shoot. As a professional wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles,  I was hired onto this commercial production as the key wardrobe stylist.

We had multiple outfits for the talent to match each of the brand’s products and looks. This TV commercial took place on location in Los Angeles in a modern house in West Hollywood. This commercial / branded shoot took 2 days to capture on camera. This particular brand already has a very established style so my job was to match this commercial styling to heir previous campaigns.

As a wardrobe stylist I had been working in Shanghai, China for 5 years where I had the luck to collaborate many times with Asian clients. Through my previous experience, it was easy to understand the type of aesthetic this client was looking for. In terms of color aesthetic, their products are packaged in red a green boxes so I used pastel colors and reds to highlight and complement their branding. We had multiple wardrobe options by the time of the fitting. Everything fit perfectly on the models so during the set, all I had to adjust were the clothes to look perfect the camera. I’m very happy  about how this branded commercial turned out and it truly highlights my job as a professional wardrobe stylist.

I had a great time working with Brand’s Worldwide and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.
